Please review the Howard Arrival and Dismissal Procedures!


Safety is everyone’s responsibility! Please help keep our children safe!

Please exercise and model positive behavior during arrival and dismissal.  A little patience will go a long way.  If everyone follows our basic traffic flow guidelines, local ordinances and traffic laws,  it will help us to have a smooth and safe arrival and dismissal.

Please click on the link at the bottom of this post to view a map with traffic/parking guidelines and expectations to help keep our students safe!

You may wait in your car during dismissal in front of the building, but you may be asked to move forward to keep the traffic flowing.  If your child does not come to your car shortly after dismissal, you may circle the block and return to the designated pick up area.  By the time you circle around, your child may be waiting for you.  If you need to exit your car during dismissal, you must not park in designated “no parking” areas.  Cars will be  ticketed for parking in our traffic flow area during this time.  

Do not drop students off anywhere but our designated drop off locations in front of the school.  It is not safe to drop them off on the opposite side of the street or any other location. 

Remember that N. York is a two-way street, so drivers should not pass vehicles that are dropping off children if this will block traffic in the opposite direction.  

Everyone must use the crosswalk to cross the street at all times.  Crossing the street at our drop off/pick up location only slows down the flow of traffic even more, and creates an unsafe situation for the children.  Using the crosswalk models what we expect from the children, and is the only safe way to cross the street. 

Thank you!

All Dearborn Public Schools will be open on Monday, February 12, 2018.

We want to thank all the hard working Engineers, Custodians, and staff members in the Operations and Grounds Department for putting in many extra hours this weekend to clear school parking lots and sidewalks.

We also want to extend a thank you to all the crews at the City of Dearborn who have been working hard all weekend to clear streets in our city.

After checking road conditions, talking with the City of Dearborn, and having discussions with our Transportation Department the District does not anticipate any wide spread problems or delays.

However, with the amount of snowfall and cold temperatures, conditions may exist on a few side streets that require slower then normal and extra cautious driving. Please be advised that these conditions may cause some buses to run a bit behind schedule on Monday.

Bundle up and see you in school on Monday!

Happy Holidays!

Dear Howard Learning Community,

May the spirit of the season bring you and your family peace, joy and happiness! Thank you to the entire Howard learning community for all that you do to support our students! Enjoy your break! We look forward to seeing you in 2018! Happy New Year!

1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run




On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 Howard Elementary School PTA will be hosting our 1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run. There will be a 5k and 1 mile fun run throughout the neighborhood where you pass through color zones and get doused in a rainbow of color.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention month so we want to help increase awareness and support for two amazing charities.   We will be donating 10% of the proceeds to each of the following  charities:

Child Help– Prevention and treatment for abused and neglected children, and Forgotten Harvest– Stopping child hunger.

The rest of the proceeds will be used for the PTA to help provide financial support for Howard Elementary School Classrooms.

This is a super fun event for all ages that promotes a life-long healthy way of living and brings our strong community together to make a difference.

Howard STAND students will be selling Santa hats tomorrow (Thursday) for $2.  The hat will be personalized with your child’s name on it.  We are asking that all hats remain at school until Friday so that students can wear them to the Howard Sing-Along.  One hat per person, please.  All proceeds will be used to purchase fleece to make animal blankets for the Humane Society.

Thank you for sharing and caring!!
